KOTTA container demonstration at Port Bronka
On 28 May 2021 new model of KOTTA container with increased payload capacity was demonstrated at Port Bronka. The new model with upgraded construction elements will allow transportation of cargo up to 37 tons inside 20-foot container.
The possibility of using KOTTA technology for handling of additional volume of mineral fertilizers including potassium chloride in the ports of Russia’s North-West Region was discussed during the trial under the supervision of EuroChem representatives. It will be necessary to use a 40-foot lightweight rail platform with increased load capacity for smooth railway transportation of newly designed containers. Two new KOTTA containers transported by one rail platform might be comparable by capacity to a hopper wagon or an open-top wagon.
